Last week, a post about a traffic light getting mowed down at Broadway and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg drew an e-mail from another reader who noted that work is underway to add bike lanes and medians to the street. It's actually part of a number of changes in the neighborhood, including the installation of a major number of traffic lights. As for the Broadway redo, a reader writes: "I thought it was a whole repaving and traffic-island making. After a bit of research it looks like Broadway between Bedford and Kent will become a greenway." Well, it's going to have a big planted median, two bike lanes and one lane of traffic in each direction.
